This is one of the first spring flowers to open, in fact we are only a couple of weeks into winter and the first one of them is in bloom. Of course, we rarely have any snow here for them to poke through, but that doesn’t matter. The plants have wider leaves than most Snowdrops and of course – white flowers. Hiding inside until they are fully open is the green collar around the bells. The plant is about 6″ tall.
